in the market for a while. people know about it, and the reality is that in the u.s. specifically we see economic activity improving in the future and improving more than expectations and a big driver of that is the housing market. housing drives consumption and housing prices are going from linear to parabolic which gives the consumer more power to purchase. >> rick santelli, jump in here for a minute because we're trying to figure out if in fact we are seeing this trade out of fixed income, into stocks, not necessarily happening today, but do you have any read in terms of if this is an actual trend happening? >> well, i think when i look at treasuries, i see we're only up 19 basis points on the year in 10s. i don't think it's an issue. i don't see this impending huge selloff in treasuries. listen to the dovishness in europe with regard to a variety of issues, not the least of which is they are worried about a high euro and growth in some of the southern countries. >> yeah. what did you -- >> i do see it playing out in high yield and corporates. quickly if you look at barclays, one-mont

say they do not have the capability to make a bomb. >> well, zoraida, it will be days before the u.s. has a very good handle on the size of the explosion, the size of the payload, but at first glance what u.s. officials are very concerned about are north korea's claims that it testified a miniaturized nuclear weapon. why is that so concerning? that means they're closer to making a missile that they could launch toward the united states. these types of dplier tesnuclea moves them closer to mastering the idea. it was expected, officials tell me, that north korea warned the u.s. and china yesterday that a test was eminent. after the test president obama issued a statement. what he said was north korea's nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs constitute a threat to u.s. national security and to international peace and security. we will strengthen close coordination with allies and partners and work with our six-party partners,united nations security council and other u.n. member states to pursue this. they will be meeting this morning in an emergency session. my source is telling

with the u.s. government not paying interest on its debt, then god knows what would have happened. this is not like that. this is something where the negative effects kick in gradually. the world won't end if we go a month into this thing, so he can afford to wait, where i believe the republicans will have to cave eventually. what he should be looking for is i think some face-saving way for everybody to just kick this can down the road. we could have some vague spending cuts promised in the future, some real revenue sources. >> all in the future. >> all in the future. this is a terrible time to do us a terry. >> i think his reaction depends on whether or not the republicans can hold their coalition together. and if they can create a coalition that holds together, which might even include some democrats, i think they can prevail on this issue and get a small amount of cost reduction. i think if they shy away from -- >> do you want to see some us a terry now? >> they have to demonstrate some ability to manage the costs over the long run if you want to see the private sector grow as

. some of them are interesting. high volatility u.s. large caps and micro cap stocks. it would seem you're increasing the beta place. when you say u.s. large cap volatile stocks, what do you mean by that? >> well, we believe that there's an evolution in the asset classes that investors are going to be tapping into in the next decade. you know, if you look back over the last 20 years, people spent a lot of time arguing, what was the value stock, what was a growth stock. and a lot of times it was in the eye of the beholder. volatility is a much more objective mesh yasure of what a stock is. you can do very good long term, 80 and 90-year analysis of what this asset class means. and right now, we show high volatility stocks have been beaten down very, very much in the rally, relative to low volatility, sort of bond proxy stocks. that suggests to us that they're one of the best opportunities in the market, as we stabilize, as the fed keeps pushing in liquidity. i think you're going to see a return to those kinds of beaten-down names. >> you know, michael, one of the big talkers of the mornin
's the higher end of walmart's previously issued guidance range. the world's largest retailer forecast, the u.s. key same-store sales to grow between 1% and 3%. last year's fourth quarter grew 1.5 year over year. but beyond financials, investors will look into possible investigations. there hasn't been a clear timeline as to when the investigation results will be released from the allegations that walmart issued millions of dollars in bribes to officials in mexico. if you remember, it was last quarter that walmart stated an s.e.c. filings that they have expanded those investigations beyond just mexico and to brazil, china and india. >> you know, this is going to be a fascinating story today. we heard about these leaked memos. walmart knocking it down saying things were taken out of context. i saw something overnight from the nrf, national retail federation where they said something like six out of ten americans say their savings and their budgeting has been somewhat or greatly impacted by the changes in the taxes that kicked in at the beginning of the year. >> and i think it's interesting becau
. the grain's lowest price in one month. and u.s. small business owners' confidence increasing just slightly last month but remaining near record low levels. the national federation of independent businesses reporting its index rose to 88.9. the survey says uncertainty about the economy has kept small business owners from hiring and expanding. it's the old u word. david: by the way, it has been a wild day for buffalo wild wings on expectations of their earnings. we don't have to expect 234eu78, we've got the earnings. adam shapiro, what are the numbers? >> reporter: that's right. the adjusted earnings per share came in at 89 cents, the convenient was expecting 96 cents. revenue, however, is a big beat, the stteet was expecting 294.4% million. the stock is trading down after hours. here is something that might be driving all of this. same-store sales increased just 5.8% at company-owned restaurants. the ceo actually making a statement about all of this talking about the difficulty in some of the comparisons that people will be reading as they go through this earnings report. quote: we are ene
, back to you. >> thank you very much, simon hobbs. let's see how this is all going to impact the u.s. session here. we have the head of u.s. equity and quantitative strategy with bank of america, merrill lynch. nice to see you. >> nice to see you, too. thank you for having me on. >> we've been able to put europe on the back burner, but right now it might bring back bad memory for investors that this is exactly what derailed us a year ago. >> it's eerily similar. you know, i think, though, that the big surprise for the u.s. equity market is that we might not see a pullback. i feel like everyone's expecting one. and we might not actually see one. for a bunch of reasons. i mean, last year, i think one thing that was a little bit different was that sentiment was not as negative as it was at this point, where we are today. if you look at wall street strategists, equity allocation is still sub 50%. you've still got a lot of strategists with price targets below where the market is today. i feel like a lot of investors have regarded this rally that we've seen so far as, you know, too far, to

. a 2009 study of u.s. infrastructure by the american society of civil engineers concluded that we need $2.2 trillion to be spent over five years to bring the nation's roads, bridges, railway tracks, airports and associated systems up to grade. let me make three crucial points. first, this is the big bang. it would be the most effective way to create good jobs. unemployment in the construction industry is among the nation's highest. around 16%. the private sector is still not investing much in construction. second, it's cheap. the federal government's borrowing costs tay are lower than they are ever likely to be, again. deferring maintenance is not fiscal prudence. when your boiler explodes, it costs more than it would had you just spent the money keeping it in good functioning order. we need to spend that money now. third, this is an area where the federal government has always had a bill role, one that republicans have long embraced. in 1930, even as herbert hoover was trying to balance the federal budget, he urged large scale expenditures on infrastructure. despite all this, infrastruct

. in mexico, there's a walmart and you always remember the global reach. but it is still very much a u.s.-based company. we are exporting a lot of gasoline to other countries because, like the mismatch of where the oil is versus the refiners are, there's a tremendous mismatch of where the refiners are versus where both coasts we need refined products. so it is a degree of art fishlty. it's funny because it comes at a time when people are thinking about the keystone pipeline. these are different issues. and the keystone pop line obviously brings oil, not refined product. but when you see all that refined product going overseas that we make, there should be a bit of outrage. you don't know who who to direct it to. the president right now is not a friend of fossil fuels. >> today in the journal, arguing that he might say yes to keystone. so that trend could change. but on the consumer, january numbers for retailers in general were pretty good, shortened month, though. >> many people don't get their paychecks until the end of the month. maybe walmart internal e-mail, you know, that certainly
